Kardos Dry Furmint 2018


Kardos Vineyards Estate

Rich, waxy, textured Furmint, with green fruits on the nose – think gooseberries, greengages, quince, pear and lime, along with a very pleasant orange peel note on the finish. Complex and elegant, this is a real winner that would be perfectly at home on any wine list.

Meet the producer

This winery ticks so many boxes... tiny and family owned, steeped in history, from Tokaj – the oldest classified wine...



From 20 year old vines grown in the south facing Arany Sajgó vineyard on volcanic white zeolite soil. Grapes are manually harvested and fast crushing and destemming takes place within hours of harvesting. Grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press, controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks where natural Tokaji yeast is added. Wine is aged in stainless stell tanks for three months with battonage once a week.

Tasting notes

Pale green in colour with an intense nose. Fresh, with notes of gooseberry, pear and lime. which follow through on the palate. Dry and beautifully crisp with an elegant minerality which keeps the wine in balance.

Food match

Perfect as an apertif, or try with seafood linguine, salads and cheese.
